The likes of acclaimed artists, Sigrid have spoken about the irregularities of festival line-ups that do not really portray a fair and equal gender-split amongst those set to play for each. While this poses problems for gender inequality within the music industry, as female artists are outed by their more dominant male counterparts, does this just reflect on more the musical talent the male artists bring? Do they top the festival bills more often because they’re known to bring a higher audience rate than those of female artists?
Of course, this highly controversial topic is always in the air, and extremely opinionated depending on who you spend time talking to. So, whatever side of the fence you’re on, do let me know!
